A new Fortnite update was released today, January 22, for all users.
This new patch from Epic Games didn’t include any major bugfixes, but will prove extremely useful for one group of gamers.
Fortnite Update 1.27 adds support for the Korean language, meaning a much bigger field of players will be opening up to the game.
This follows news of some major issues with Fortnite servers and Waiting in Queue error message popping up.
While the problems seem to be abating now, fans have problems playing the game tonight.
“Whoops! The Bus was low on BluGlo. We’ve since refueled and are ready to go!” a message from Epic Games reads.
“You may encounter a waiting room queue while we start the engines.”
Fortnite gamers have had an exciting week, with the Battle Royale map update arriving on PS4, Xbox One and PCs as part of the big V.2.2.0 patch.
The recent Fortnite map update proved one of the biggest ever launch for the popular Battle Royale title, adding eight new locations as well as changing existing ones.
Patch V.2.2.0 brought with it the ‘Tilted Towers’ area, a highly anticipated city location that fans had been calling for.
One other feature that Fortnite Battle Royale fans have had high on their wishlists is vehicles.
Vehicles play a huge part in matches played in Fortnite Battle Royale’s big rival PUBG, with motorcycles, vans and pickups helping players travel the map quickly.
When Epic Games first launched the Fortnite Battle Royale free download last September, they said they were looking into adding vehicles.
The Fortnite team even said they had created prototypes for some ideas.
But since then it’s all gone quiet on the vehicles front, with no indication of whether it will get added to Fortnite Battle Royale.
But speaking to Express.co.uk, the Fortnite team have given an update – and explained how vehicles would be used in Battle Royale.
Eric Williamson, Fortnite’s Lead Systems Designer, told us: “We’ve heard a few people ask about vehicles, yeah.
“There have been plenty of conversations about how they can fit into the game. Right now we don’t see them as a necessity, but rather as an opportunity.”
Going into more detail, Eric added: “What I mean by that is, our travel distances aren’t so long that vehicles are required.
“So if we do add them, it will be for fun and unique situational strategies.”
